The power of television

This ebay item, eBay item 3962513751 (Ends Mar-14-05 13:22:33 PST) - PENTAGON Crane AMERICAN FLAG Sept 11 2001 9/11 ORIGINAL was featured on ABC World News tonight. It is a flag that was flying at the Pentagon on 9/11 and the owner needs to sell it to pay medical bills. It had been on ebay for a week and had built up to a bid of $79,000. After the report aired I went to ebay and watched the bid steadily climb for about ten minutes to over $100,000 then came back a while later and was astonished to find that Within 3 hours of the broadcast it was up to $314,000!

It pays to advertise - especially when the advertising is free!
